Fuel Station + McDonald’s is a project created by the Georgian architect Giorgi Khmaladze. The avant-garde building of the most famous fast food restaurant in the world was recently built in the urbanized part of the seaside city of Batumi, Georgia.
It comprises a fuel station, recreation space and a swimming pool, which became the dominant part of the territory.
The spaces of the building are composed in such a way, that two main programs fuel station and restaurant – are isolated from one another, both physically and visually. Thus, all operations of the fuel station are hidden from the view of the customers of the fast food restaurant.
Because of the predefined small sizes of the building, most of the supporting and utility spaces are grouped and located on the ground level to be close to all technical access points.
Public space of the restaurant starts from the lobby, which has a separate entrance on the ground floor, from where customers can access other levels of the building.
The vegetation layer, which covers the cantilevered canopy of the fuel station, adds natural spirit and acts as a ecological shield on the terrace.
